  29 jui 2005 Multilateral Environmental Agreements and Private Investment

Environmental and investment policies have the potential to reinforce their respective goals while promoting the broader objective of sustainable development. Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) aim at changing the collective behaviour of governments, private investors, and other stakeholders in order to achieve certain environmental goals. They are also an important part of the international context in which investment takes place. Therefore, MEAs promoting investment objectives and investment activity in support of MEA implementation play an important role in making investment and environment policies compatible.

The successful implementation of MEAs cannot be achieved by public efforts alone, but also relies on private sector contribution. Therefore, MEAs need to be designed in a way that promotes private sector involvement. Environmentally-friendly investments represent an opportunity for environmental policies and the private sector: while contributing to the goals of MEAs they may lead to enhanced economic returns. The report aims at deepening the understanding of this potential. It examines the main areas of inter-linkage between MEAs and private investment activity focusing on the three Rio Conventions and the Montreal Protocol.

  29 jui 2005 Multilevel Regulatory Governance

This report considers the ways and means of optimising relations between levels of government (supranational, national and subnational) in terms of the quality of regulation. It draws on many OECD studies, though the information they contain has to date been only rarely treated from the standpoint of multilevel governance. Today, however, the growing role of supra- and subnational levels presents governments with new challenges, to which a suitable regulatory framework could help to provide answers.

This report is exceptionally provided in both English and French. The French version "La gouvernance réglementaire multi-niveaux" follows immediately behind the English version of the report.

  29 jui 2005 Fair Trade and the Multilateral Trading System
Lea Vihinen, Hyung-Jong Lee
The OECD Secretariat has prepared this note on "Fair Trade" as a contribution to discussion of trade-related issues of current interest that fall outside the Trade Committee’s normal work programme. The goals of this paper are twofold. First, the paper is meant as a foundation for better understanding the Fair Trade movement — who its actors are, how it works, and how widespread it is — all of which have a bearing on the extent to which policy makers should pay attention to it. Second, it seeks to identify trade and other policy issues and raise some questions for discussion.
